Kaitlin is a 2019 graduate from Gustavus Adolphus College, where she majored in Communication Studies and minored in Management. She currently works as an Admission Counselor for the college and is thrilled to be back at her alma mater!

The moment Kaitlin drove up the hill for her first tour, she knew she wanted to call Gustavus home. As a Gustie, Kaitlin took advantage of everything Gustavus offered and was widely involved on campus. Outside of classes, she focused her time on volunteer organizations, community engagement, and making positive connections and friendships. She served as lead Coordinator of Big Partner Little Partner, a student Ambassador, played in flute choir, participated in intramurals, and worked with the local schools to promote inclusion and education among immigrant students. One of her favorite memories from Gustavus is studying abroad in Italy for a J-Term.

Kaitlin loves making connections with students and families. She is currently living in Mankato and in her free time enjoys baking, reading, volunteering, and going for walks. She would love to see you on campus and show you what it means to be a Gustie!
